While at Jennings the other day I spotted this lovely butterfly. So I stopped to take some pictures.
While taking pics of the butterfly I saw something in my peripheral vision and was like "WHAT was that!"
It looked like a really HUGE moth. It was zipping all around and it wasn't real close by so I couldn't get a good look at it but I knew I definitely didn't want it flying in to me.
As it got closer I got a better look and thought maybe I was going a little crazy because my mind instantly went to "hummingbird" but I knew it couldn't be.
I said a little prayer. God, please let that THING come to a closer flower so I can get some pictures of it.
And the prayer was answered.
I came home and showed Mike the pictures and we were hoping to find out what it was. When I said something about it reminding me of a hummingbird Mike was all "OH! Maybe it is a hummingbird moth!" And that is what it is.
More specifically it's a Snowberry Clearwing Hummingbird Moth. Clearwing because it has clear wings. :)
Look at the things tongue!! Freaky!
Seriously... the creature was huge. And kind of ugly... but pretty cool at the same time.
